Take a cooking class in the demonstration kitchen or enjoy a picnic surrounded by a gorgeous local garden.
Community Garden Plot Rental ProgramCommunity Gardens offer a variety of benefits to their communities. Not only do they improve access to fresh food but they also serve as a space for neighbors to connect and reflect on nature's beauty. Participants rent plots to be a part of a functional community garden. This garden also serves as a model for participants in the Conservatory's Growing to Green program.
Please refrain from picking or eating produce grown in the Community Garden. A Free Little Farmstand is available.
At this time, there is a very long waitlist for Community Garden plots. It can take several seasons or more before plots become available. We are very grateful for the overwhelming interest in the Community Garden and everyone is welcome to join the waitlist but we also encourage prospective gardeners to consider community gardens across Central Ohio. If you have questions about joining the waitlist or need assistance locating one near you, please contact us at email@example.com.
Free Little FarmstandTake some produce, give some produce!
Growing an edible garden can often mean growing a surplus of a given item. The Free Little Farmstand was created as a way to swap and share what we grow in our gardens with each other! The stand provides free produce grown from the Teen Corps Garden, Community Garden Campus and Community Garden plot holders. Our neighbors and community members are welcome to enjoy the delicious and nutritious bounty!
The Free Little Farmstand is located in the Community Garden Campus at the Conservatory and, like the rest of the Community Garden, is always free to the public.
An enormous thank you is owed to Conservatory volunteers for constructing and contributing to the Farmstand.
